Frogmen on a routine training session discovered the body of twentythree year old Paul Duval lying face-down in the bushes.
A post mortem revealed that Paul had been murdered late Thursday evening and had died due to multiple injuries inflicted by a knife to the heart and chest area.
One theory currently being investigated by police is that Paul was murdered for rebuking another man’s sexual advances.
The National press and local Radio have repeatedly reported over the last 12 days that the area where the body was found is a popular gay meeting place, a sort of miniature Hampstead Heath.
A local police spokesman, who has been attached to Slough Police Station for the last ten years, said that the area, to the best of his knowledge, was only frequented by ‘fishermen’ at night time. Furthermore, any reports in the national press stating this area to be frequented by homosexuals was complete and utter fabrication acting only as a cheap booster to the reportage of that particular national newspaper.
The Evening News and the Evening Standard have both over the last week stated categorically and supported by their police spokesman, that the Colnbrook area is crawling with homosexuals at night time. ‘These views” said our spokesman, “are completely unfounded and would not be supported by any officer attached to this station.”
